Unsurprisingly, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 will reveal some skins
JRPG series by Monolith Soft Xenoblade Chronicles is known for revealing a bit of skin from time to time and it seems the third entry will be no different. According to a recent ESRB rating published earlier this week, players are in for an adventure filled with blood and violence, curses and salacious themes.
Note: Spoilers may be ahead.
One section of the classification in particular seems to attract attention around certain parts of the Internet (yes twitter) is the revealing armor – with characters and creature designs that feature “plunging cleavage” and “partially bared breasts”. Again, there will be swearing and violence. Here’s the full synopsis:
“This is an RPG where players follow combatants through a conflict between two nations. From the third-person perspective, players complete quests and engage in melee combat against enemies (e.g. animals, creatures, human boss characters). is highlighted by impact sounds, explosions and screams of pain. Cutscenes show more instances of violence: characters being impaled by swords; a character who shoots himself out of the screen; a man sticking himself out of the screen. A handful of scenes show blood (e.g., drops falling from a wounded character; drops of blood on a character’s face.) Some fantasy characters/creatures are designed with revealing armor and/or anatomy (e.g., plunging cleavage, partially exposed breasts). The words “sh*t”, “ar* ehole” and “b*tch” appear in the dialogue.”
While this type of content might come as a surprise to some in a first-party release from Nintendo, it’s not necessarily the first time we’ve seen this type of review from the ESRB when it comes to a Xenoblade release. The original game had “partial nudity” and below is part of it Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review, which also includes similar but different “suggestive themes” and language:
“The game contains some stimulating material: female characters/creatures wearing outfits that show a lot of cleavage; Camera pans and lingering shots of buttocks and/or breasts; Dialogue stating, “You were staring… pervert!” Throughout the game, characters will refer to alcohol in dialogue (e.g., “Schnapps! I want schnapps”, “Cheers, honey! Get me a beer. ‘), and in the background are guests drinking alcohol Character is depicted with a cigar in his mouth. The words “sh*t” and “a*shole” are heard in-game.”
It’s worth noting that Xenoblade Chronicles 3 was rated “T for Teen” – making it the same rating as the previous two entries on Nintendo Switch. Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has also received an ‘M for Mature’ rating in Australia. You can read more about it in our previous post.
Aside from that ESRB rating, the game’s release date has been brought forward this week, moving from September 2022 to July 29th.
